OneChicago enjoys volume boom


Securities finance exchange OneChicago saw its monthly volume soar 88 percent year over year in April.

OneChicago’s notional value of trading also increased 114 percent to $8.9 billion year over year.

The exchange attributed the strong growth to equity finance participants utilising spread transactions to transfer relatively expensive equity positions and replace them with delta one-equivalent single stock futures.

Single stock futures expire weekly, allowing investors to leverage flexibility of T+1 settlement.

OneChicago’s single stock futures platform is offered on approximately 1,800 equities, including American depository receipts and exchange-traded funds.
